The Harris Student Design Center was unveiled Friday, Nov. 20, on the Florida Institute of Technology campus.

The 11,500-square-foot, single story structure, made possible by a $1 million gift from Harris Corporation, will serve College of Engineering and College of Science seniors completing capstone design projects.

“The new Harris Student Design Center represents Florida Tech’s long-term investment in improving our students’ experiences in their capstone projects, team interactions and overall exposure to the innovation, design and execution of their ideas,” said Martin Glicksman, dean of the College of Engineering. “In addition, the HSDC ensures everyone a safer, professional environment for accomplishing these important activities.”

The Harris Student Design Center is located on the south side of campus, not far from the Harris Center for Science and Engineering that opened in 2009. In the design center’s high bay space, student teams will fabricate and assemble a variety of projects, from unmanned submersibles and Baja cars to lunabots.
